Southwest Ohio Chapter

The Southwest Ohio Chapter of A Kid Again is a Children’s Charity in Cincinnati Ohio. We are honored to serve families who are raising children living with life-threatening conditions in the Cincinnati and Dayton areas. We do so by providing cost-free, fun-filled destination events throughout the year that we call Adventures.  We could not provide a timeout from the challenge of life-long illness if not for the support of the local community and fundraisers. Thank you to all our valued partners!
